For practice, I decided to open the Akashic Records for my business, Sacred Grove. The Akashic Records are the complete knowledge of anything that exists.

I saw a rainforest; I felt a very high vibration of power and felt the presence of many animals, not just ones you’d find in a rainforest. What did it mean?

The Amazon Rainforest – The World’s Lungs

The Amazon Rainforest

The Amazon Rainforest

The Amazon rainforest has been called the Earth’s lungs because of the amount of oxygen it produces; it is a life giver for us all.

The rainforest symbolism for me is that Sacred Grove gives me access to a deep reservoir of healing and knowledge when I work with clients.

A Water Buffalo Appears

I was enjoying the vision when out stepped a water buffalo. What did THAT mean??

Humans have given symbolic meanings to animals for a very long time.

We knew species’ characteristics and named our clans and children after them.

We paid attention to animals in our dreams and made decisions based on our interpretations.

These words are symbolically associated with the water buffalo: Strength, Service, Dedication, Connection to Earth Mother. They certainly describe my intention when I work with people and pets.

In many Southeast Asian cultures, buffalo carry the dead to the afterlife. Probably not a coincidence that I have a gift for helping people when their pets transition “to the afterlife.”

I named “my” water buffalo Esmeralda; she likes the name. She is lounging in my office with me and my dogs, Stella and TIbor as I write this. Or that is what I imagine…

Ways to go deeper:

Learn more:
Read Ted Andrews’ book, Animal Speak. Also, look for information on animal totems.

Use animals as symbols:
In the morning, say or intend, “The next wild animal I see today will give me some insight into my day.” When you see the animal, look up its meaning. See how it plays out in your day.

For businesses:
Businesses have separate energetic vibration from their owners. This can be used in a powerful way if we consciously connect to it.

Set an intention that you’d like an expanded and positive view of your business. Spend time daydreaming or meditating on your business. See what you receive – images, songs (pay attention to the words), phrases, a memory, even a smell or feeling.

Incorporate those “downloads” before you begin work on your business.

By doing this, you have made the consciousness of your business your energetic partner.
